Need a good pedalboard?

Get a Pedaltrain pedal board! I just got one, and I really like it.

You may have seen my old pedalboard that I made myself out a of a suitcase. It has performed quite well for my over the last few years. However, it started to fall apart; the lid wouldn't close properly so risked losing all my pedals when I left the gig. No good. I have a page detailing my old pedalboard made out of a suitcase if you want to go that route (it sure doesn't cost much!)

I did some research, and found that a lot of guys talk about the Pedaltrain pedalboards. The nice things about these boards are these 3 things:

  1. Inexpensive
  2. Light weight - made of aluminum
  3. Versatile

That's what my board looks like today. You can fit in quite a few pedals on this board.

MusiciansFriend has Pedaltrains of course

I know a lot of guys like Pumaboards. These boards look awesome and are of course great. They won't be as light though.

Trailertrash pedal boards are also high quality boards.

Yet another good custom pedalboard maker is NYC Pedalboards.

Pumaboards, Trailer Trash and NYC pedalboards make custom boards, so if you want someone to put together the perfect board for you, check these guys out. They will customize your board for you.

For me, the Pedaltrain was a no brainer, based on the 3 things I've mentioned - price, weight and versatility.

Check out the official Pedaltrain website for more information.
